The Ear Institute actively encourages the career development of all staff and students. We have for example set up an EI conference fund to help academic, research and professional services staff attending essential workshops or meetings. The following sections highlight the opportunities for independent funding, fellowships, resources and mentoring programmes.
Professional Services and Research Staff
The CMALT mentoring programme is a UCL ran scheme available to all staff who actively use learning technologies (i.e. Moodle) as part of their daily role. It is based on mentor support for a portfolio assessment leading to certified membership of the Association for Learning Technology. CMALT accreditation is a nationally recognised professional qualification.
The next CMALT mentoring programme is scheduled for Autumn 2017.
Study Assistance Scheme
In addition to the opportunities set out in the Professional Services Staff Section above, UCL also actively supports the career development of academic staff by providing a gateway to independence at UCL, and support in the application process for various fellowship schemes:
- UCL Excellence Fellowship Programme (Post-doctoral Researchers)
- Postdoctoral Fellowship Schemes (Post-doctoral Researchers)
- Research Support
Academic promotion processes
Details about the promotion processes for different grades of academic, research
and teaching staff can be found at the following websites:

Staff have a right to request an appraisal, which are important to aid your career development and progression. The aim of the Ear Institute is to conduct annual appraisal of all our staff.
